Keith: There is something about lighthouses that draws me in every time.  Another fine example of early America still in-use...enjoyed the history behind it too.

Hi Keith,

Great photo and I too enjoyed the history. My father had his room in lighthouses and had a picture on the wall that resembled your photo. He has passed on but your post gave me some great memories. Thanks Keith.

What a gorgeous spot. Made me think of Ireland. I'd love to visit Maine one day... so far away from here.

That is an awesome photo. I didn't realize that the lighthouse on the coin is a real light house. Learn something new everyday.
